This authentic, detached timber lodge offers the perfect ingredients for a romantic and relaxing break on the lower slopes of Blencathra, one of the most impressive fells in the Lake District National Park. Situated on a working beef and sheep farm this cute lodge was designed with couples in mind. It comes complete with a south-facing outdoor patio area with garden furniture, which makes it a great place to soak up the sun, and offers the seclusion and privacy your romantic break deserves. The ground floor is all open plan and has a well-equipped kitchen and breakfast bar, which overlooks a cosy living room with a comfortable two-seater sofa and flatscreen TV. Just off the living room is a small but high spec shower room. Upstairs, you will find a cosy bedroom with timber beams and a feature bed. Your pets are welcome to stay, so no need to wave goodbye to those sad puppy eyes when you go on holiday, bring them along too!

Threlkeld is a small village just off the A66, which is the main route between Penrith and Keswick. Almost directly opposite is Keswick Golf Club, so if you fancy a round while you’re away, you could not be much closer. The quaint village of Scales, along with a couple of local pubs offering great food and local cask ales, is just a mile away. The lodge is just 5 miles from the vibrant Lake District town of Keswick, which is brimming with great restaurants, pubs serving local craft ales, an excellent range of shopping experiences and some memorable tourist attractions. If you fancy something a bit different, then why not visit The Derwent Pencil Museum, home to the world’s largest pencil. Also within easy reach is Puzzling Place, which is full of mind-boggling optical illusions. If you like culture, you could try the Theatre by the Lake, with its enviable position on the shores of Derwentwater, which offers award-winning performances in drama and arts.

If you like walking or cycling, you are surrounded by some of the most challenging fells in the area, as well as a number of less challenging walking routes suitable for people who like sightseeing without the strain. Keswick is at the northern end of Derwentwater, one of the area’s iconic lakes, and offers a great base and starting point for many an adventure. You can tick off a few of Wainwright’s 214 Lakeland Fells, including Skiddaw, Blencathra and Helvellyn within a few miles’ radius. Whatever the reason for your visit, Harrison’s Lodge offers a great base, inspiring surroundings and a touch of quirkiness to make your next Lake District getaway one to remember. Shop 4½ miles, pub ¾ mile and restaurant 1¼ miles.
Harrison’s Lodge can be booked with Lucy’s Lodge (UK1260), Grajo Cottage (UK1284), Darci’s Lodge (UK1297), Derwent Dale Cottage (UK1334), Brackendale (UK1335), Shepherd’s Bield (UK1349), Doddick Chase Cottage (UK1363), The Rocking Lodge (UK11517) and Danika East (UK32363) to accommodate up to 32 guests.

Good location. Lodge well equipped, clean, wifi connection not great. Stairs dangerous in particular coming down. Bannister wobbly. Shower has terrible drainage.

Although our cottage was very clean - there were a few things that detracted from our stay. A previous occupant had reported a broken blind in the kitchen - but we were managing to make it work - a couple of workmen came in to 'fix the blind' - ending up pulling it off the wall completely and said they would return the next day with a replacement - we did not hear from them again. (We did report a faulty light fitting in the shower room and this was replaced the same day.) The shower does not drain properly / is not fully functional / the stairs to the upper floor are poorly designed and could be considered dangerous. Access to the parking bay beside the lodge is extremely difficult to navigate and you would not be able to get in or out if the first lodge were using their space.
